Chinese national oil companies in Africa

September 20, 2016

DEGRP-funded researchers based at the Open University have released a set of short video clips about their research into Chinese oil companies in Africa.

Featuring interviews with researchers and members of the project’s international advisory network, the videos set the scene for the project’s research on the interaction between China’s oil interests and African state and non-state actors in Ghana, Angola and Sudan.

The clips include commentary on:

  • Key players in Africa’s oil sector;
  • the main drivers of Chinese presence in the sector;
  • the potential development impact of Chinese engagement;
  • governance issues; and
  • the links between the oil sector and development finance.
